Balmain Spring/Summer 2014 RTW

Don’t give up on overalls!  Balmain Spring 2014 RTW put an edgy spin on the lumberjack look.  They used glossy leather, double breasted hardware details at the center and brought back the baggy “Aaliyah” silhouette.  I’m not into overalls, but when I saw the look I was IMPRESSED!!  I’d wear it, but the thing is it appears you have to be super tall to pull this look off right.  I’m only 5’5 1/2!

I’m already a big fan of quilting, thanks to the chic timelessness of the CoCo Chanel bag.  In this collection you’ll see a hint of the design legend’s aesthetic, with the usual hard-hitting Balmain details and accessories like chain wrestler belts, thick chokers and zippers wrapped around entire tops and dresses!

Drop waisted skirts and dresses danced on the runway, particularly knee-length ones with ruffle detailing at the hemline.  They’re mingled with oversized sweaters, fitted jackets and lace tops.

Another way to channel the Balmain Spring 2014 vibe incorporate more houndstooth print into your everyday wardrobe!  One look features baby blue houndstooth print in an oversized sweater and pencil skirt with metal closures at the center, brought together with a chambray top.

See the collection for yourself!  These are my top picks!  Of all the Spring 2014 RTW collections this is one of my favorites.  Congrats to Balmain Creative Director Olivier Rousteing on this impeccable collection!  He’s held the position for two years and he’s found his niche!
